One of the fun things about being editor of Mountain Meetings and Colorado Meetings + Events is receiving word about what’s new in the U.S Mountain West and western Canada. Here are a few items from Wyoming, Nevada and Oregon. 

Anvil Hotel, a new 49-room property in downtown Jackson Hole, is a renovation of two buildings originally constructed as a motel in the 1950s. The hotel’s lobby functions as both a café and mercantile curated by high-end outdoor retailer, Westerlind. The hotel’s restaurant, Glorietta Trattoria, is named after Jackson’s nearby Mt. Glory and located a short walk from the lobby on Glenwood Street. The restaurant serves seasonally rotating menus that feature modern rustic wood-fired Italian cuisine and seats 85 as well as an additional 40 on the patio. 

Situated on a 250-acre property on Lake Tahoe’s scenic south shoreline, the new Lodge at Edgewood Tahoe features an 8,500-square-foot spa, 18-hole championship golf course, lakefront heated pool and hot tub, and a selection of dining, shopping and outdoor activity options. The 154 luxury rooms and suites have in-room gas fireplaces and terraces or balconies and new meeting and event space includes a ballroom, pre-function space, private dining room, boardroom and event lawn. The clubhouse features the North Room and South Room with floor-to-ceiling windows, both with a private deck and lawn space. 

Two new hidden hideaways in eastern Oregon offer a wealth of options. Silvies Valley Ranch, a 140,000-acre working ranch, is nestled in a valley between the Ochoco, Strawberry and Aldrich mountains. The ranch features a wine cellar, saloon, pistol range, full-service spa, fitness center, restaurants and two 18-hole golf courses. Located in the Eagle Cap Wilderness, Minam River Lodge is reached only by horseback, charter plane or an 8.5-mile hike. The lodge offers an array of beautiful hand-built accommodations from rustic log cabins and teepees to luxurious lodge suites. Explore trails by foot or horse and enjoy a meal featuring bounty from the lodge’s garden.  

This is just the tip of what’s happening in the mountains. Make sure to sign up for free Mountain Meetings and Colorado Meetings + Events subscriptions and our monthly e-newsletters to stay current with industry happenings. Enjoy the start of ski season and happy holidays!
